BUR Vs EVE Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Burnley’s horrendous start to the season is reminiscent of their foregone season.
Although Burnley have over the years progressed into one of the most impressive sides in the Premier League, the side has clearly had troubles to settle into its groove in the opening part of the season. Across the last couple of editions, the side has failed to come out hot out of the blocks to languish in the depths of the points tally.
It was a predicament which was them embroiled in the relegation zone at the halfway mark last season and the club once again finds itself in the same pickle. Routed 5-0 by City, Burnley find themselves in 19th spot with the team’s two match unbeaten spree being curbed with that trouncing.
In a real quandary now, Burnley know that things need to change and change fast for them. Time is running out for the side and despite their well documented fight and character, even the side is bound to be reeling under the pressure of clawing out of the bottom three.
BUR Vs EVE Fantasy Probable Winner
Burnley will turn to their defence to do the job for them and while it’s a gameplan which will serve them well, we don’t see them having enough in the tank with Everton just about squirming their way to a win.

Top Goal Scorer
- Wood: 2 Goals
- Dominic: 10 Goals
Back after recovering from an injury, Nick Pope will once again take charge of his side’s sticks today. One of the finest in the league, his ability to parry away almost everything thrown his way sees him be a must have pick for us.
Although Everton’s defensive problems have refused to leave their side, today could just be the match where they pull off a cleansheet. The club is coming across a Burnley side which has a measly 4 goals to its name, a side which has failed to score in four out of its last five fixtures.
The high likelihood of a cleansheet for the visitors sees us opt for Yerry Mina, Michael Keane and Ben Godfrey. Midfielders
The goals have dried up for James Rodriguez but despite that, he’s continued to keep playing ticking for the side in midfield. He’s joined by Abdoulaye Doucoure, a player who has assiduously done the job in both defence and attack for the club.
The one goal and one assist for Ashely Westwood see him find a place in our side from the home team with Johann Gudmundsson linking up with him.
With Burnley failing to offer the same tenacity and pluck at the back, Everton can easily go on a rampage today. Dominic Calvert-Lewin the side’s top scorer and Richarlison who has the two assists can add to the home side’s plight and worsen their already conceded 17 goals.
Burnley will see top scorer with the two strikes, Chris Wood be our pick from the club.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 10 goals for Dominic see him be our captain while Richarlison is the vice-captain.
Pope, Keane, Mina, Godfrey, James, Ashely, Doucoure, Johann, Dominic, Richarlison, Wood
